Heritage Hikes

Winner of The Pitch’s 2004 Best of Kansas City: Best Way to Learn Something New About Kansas City

Heritage Hikes highlight the architecture and history of each neighborhood. “Hikers” receive brochures which contain maps of the neighborhood with dialogue for each significant site noting the address, date built, architect(s) and the building’s description. Your guide is Lucinda Rice-Petrie, a HKC Past President and a current member of the Board of Directors. She holds a Master of Arts degree in American history, a BS in Education and a Life Certificate to teach in the State of Missouri from the University of Missouri. Lucinda serves as the liaison to Missouri Preservation.

All hikes are rain or shine! Each Heritage Hike from start to completion is around 3 miles hiked.  DRESS ACCORDING TO WEATHER CONDITIONS! No pets please.
